Yeah.  Started this as an entry for a Lion Brand contest, then realized halfway through that NJ residents were ineligible.  Finished it anyway, even though I'm not too fond of working with acrylic and even though Sprocket doesn't really need another Roman solider outfit.  Tongue 

I'm trying to write down a pattern for the helmet and pteryges and will post it when I'm done, if there's any interest.  Smiley  They're easy enough, but the construction's a little weird, because I hate sewing bits together and try to crochet as much as possible without breaking the yarn.



ETA: I'm adding the pattern in pieces, as I get it worked out.  See Page 2!

This is amazing!  I totally love it!  I'm sorry the competition didn't work out, I wonder why the excluded NJ?  Maybe you can find another contest somewhere.

What a down-right awesome job.  And having a cute model helps, too.
